A group of male college students who claim to uphold the ideals of Ancient Greece in their daily lives. Oftentimes, they actually do just this, and their members are much more cultured, kind, and devoted than the general public. However, there are some severely fucktarded ones that cater to the stereotype of groups of boorish womanizing idiots walking around calling everyone who isn't in a fraternity a GDI. There are some notable differences between these two types of fraternities:

1. Everyone joining a fraternity gets hazed. However, the second type usually subjects recruits to perverted and disturbing methods, and usually treats them like throwaway peons instead of potential brothers.

2. Members of the first type generally care about getting good grades. Members of the second are too busy thinking about how awesome they are for having so many friends.

3. Members of the first type care about appearing to be productive members of society. Others are in it to bang dumb sorostitiutes and get drunk/high, and care nothing about "Greek ideals"

4. Members of the first type are likable. Members of the second type aren't, and should be cornered and beaten when none of their friends are around to flaunt how worthless they really are.
Some members of a fraternity can be downright nasty. Don't lump them in with the members of a real fraternity

A sorry excuse for on-campus participation in clubs and a form of 'purchasing' friends or as they are known amonst themselves...'brothers', for life; in which their frats always has to revolve 2-3 greek letters, revolve around a 5 party school weekday with different types such as a 'kickback' or a 'hoe-down'...with non-stop spirits all night
Blond Sorority Girl: those guys from Blank(Insert Greek letter here) Lambda Yada yada are so cool because they got my tipsy!
Fraternity Bro's Girlfriend: I know! I know!...I like the muscular guys...you know...the ones with popped collars and such!

This is a group of males in college who pay money to spend time together. They do a lot of community service, like a couple of hours a month, to prove to the world how great they are. They host a ton of parties with copious amounts of booze; females can come for free, but men who are not affiliated with the fraternity are not allowed in. This makes it easier for frat boys to get laid. If they cannot find a helpless or unconcious girl to rape they resort to butt fucking eachother.
(P1) Bro lets join a Fraternity
(P2) No fucking way!

The fraternity is a dying breed. With notherners thinking that hair gel, popped collars, and abercrombie is cool, it is obvious why many people look down on fraternities. Southerners, however, are doing their best to keep the tradition alive. "You don't like us because you are not a part of us, and you are not a part of us because we don't like you."

-A "secret" society of homosexual white boys established so they can have butt sex in private.

Group of men who are more like to: Excel in life, get laid, have friends, and have a good time.
GDI: Errrr my life sucks.

Fraternity man: My life is so much better than that GDI's.

A fraternity is an association of men, selected in their college days by a democratic process, because of their adherence to common ideals and aspirations. Out of their association arises a personal relationship which makes them unselfishly seek to advance one another in the arts of life and to add to the formal instruction of the college curriculum, the culture, and the character which men acquire by contact with great personalities, or when admitted to partnership in great traditions.A fraternity too is of such character that after men have left college they delight to renew their own youth by continued association with it and to bring their richest experiences back to the younger generation in part payment of the debt which they feel themselves to owe to the fraternity for what is gave them in their formative years.
You will one day work for a fraternity man.
